When my sister and I were young, if we couldn't get to sleep we'd shout out "Daaaad, sing us a magic song". The magic songs in question were three of the tracks included on this soundtrack: Lullaby in Ragtime, Good Night, Sleep Tight, and The Five Pennies. I've never seen the film and I don't think I've even heard the original versions of these songs, so I was overjoyed when the soundtrack was finally made available. Hearing the originals brought back so many memories, and even made me cry! The album is wonderful, even without having seen them film. The whole atmosphere of the soundtrack reminds me of It's a Wonderful Life, and I'm sure the film will be just as touching as that. The music is great - although you can't really go far wrong with Satchmo and Danny Kaye! You do have to like lots of trumpets and brass though. Catchy, stylish, moving, exuberant - everything a soundtrack from a classic musical should be!

I originally had this recording on Brunswick (Stereo!) vinyl from 1959, but it has long gone.

After seeing it available on CD I had no hesitation in buying it again. Everyone on the recording seems to be having a good time, and the music ranges from pure jazz to a couple of more "ballad" type songs.

The US import I received is in Mono (which is probably better as some early stereo records seem too "separated"). Excellent quality and fine performances. 18 tracks, but it all fitted on one LP as some of the tunes are only between one and two minutes long.

I recall the film was partly fun, part "lump in throat" with a mushy ending, but well worth a viewing.

Not one of the best known soundtrack albums, but worth having it in your collection.

loved the film for many years,and got most of danny kayes films and cds. i actually had this on vinyl,but i wanted it on cd for the car. i really wish i hadnt as the copy is not the same tempo at all. its as if they slowed it down,so dannys voice actually sounds alot deeper than it was. and of course the band would be in the same context. i would say to the company who re-leased this,really not to bother unless you get a like for like copy from the film. you shouldnt insult his legacy by selling this. listen to it on spotify if you want to hear it properly,or get the vinyl version.

I did not know this cd existed until I saw it on Amazon. As great fans of the big bands and Danny Kaye in particular, we are very happy with this cd and have played it continuously since it arrived. We have the excellent film from which this is taken - telling the story of Red Nichols (played by Danny Kaye) who started off many of the big band favourites in his band. He quit the music industry due to a family crisis and the rest of the group went on to create their own bands.

I'm thrilled to have the sound track for this film - it is one of my favourite films, very heart-warming. Highly recommended.

I remember watching this movie as a child when the movie first came out all those years ago and we all loved it so when I saw it on-line, I did not hesitate to order it. As great as it was then, it's just as great today and I would recommend it to everyone! They don't make movies like these anymore.

I should have realised that the music would sound a bit dated - my fault - but what I really wanted was the song The Five Pennies which I sing to my grandchildren as a lullaby, and that sounds just as great and as poignant as I remember it.
